The Sovereign Republic of Sireco is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by First Consul Janus with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.481 billion Sirecans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liberius. The average income tax rate is 14.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sirecan economy, worth a remarkable 3,007 trillion sovereigns a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 207,718 sovereigns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, defense lawyers often argue there's no proof murder victims weren't vampires, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and freighter lifeboats have been replaced by state of the art marker buoys so divers can recover the cargo after they sink. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sireco's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is the Sovereign Church of Sireco.

Sireco is ranked 117,796th in the world and 4,089th in Lazarus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 422.77 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
